Join our team and use your talent to support Americans in their times of greatest need. FEMA prepares the nation for all hazards and manages Federal response and recovery efforts following any national incident. We foster innovation, reward performance and creativity, and provide challenges on a routine basis with a well-skilled, knowledgeable, high performance workforce.

    EMERGENCY ASSIGNMENT: Every FEMA employee has regular and recurring emergency management responsibilities, though not every position requires routine deployment to disaster sites. All positions are subject to recall around the clock for emergency management operations, which may require irregular work hours, work at locations other than the official duty station, and may include duties other than those specified in the employee's official position description. Travel requirements in support of emergency operations may be extensive in nature (weeks to months), with little advance notice, and may require employees to relocate to emergency sites with physically austere and operationally challenging conditions.

    This position is located in the Regional Offices, Region II, Regional Administrator, Caribbean Area Division, Natural & Cultural Resources (NCR) Sector located in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico.

    In this position, you will serve as a Public Assistance (PA) Task Force Lead. Typical duties include:

    • Supervising a team of crew leaders, technical specialists, and project specialists in the delivery of PA Grants.
    • Serving as a subject matter expert on PA policies and guidelines.
    • Reviewing project applications to ensure conformity to regulations and established eligibility criteria.
    • Collaborating with sub-recipients and PA Policy Staff to resolve eligibility questions and concerns.
    • Providing recommendations to Sector leadership on strategies to advance operational goals.

    Promotion Potential: Positions filled under Stafford Act regulations generally do not have documented promotion potential; however, dependent on an employee’s ability to perform higher level duties, the continuing need for an employee to perform work associated with a higher level position, and administrative recommendation and approval, promotions may be earned by CORE employees.
